Junior Jack Hall is the Athlete of the Week for the week of March 10. In two of last week's four games, Hall hit two walk-off hits to win the first two games of the season for the Cadets.
In the season opener against Walsingham Academy, Hall hit a sac-fly (sacrifice fly out) to score senior Brett Cook. The following game against Norfolk Christian, Hall once again walked off for the Cadets by hitting a single to score sophomore Jay Woolfolk.
"Man, it was such a great feeling," said Hall. "We were struggling to hit, but my team had the confidence in me to produce."
Hall is the catcher for the Cadets and bats fourth in the batting lineup. He caught all four games last week and claimed to "hit well." Being a three-year varsity baseball player for the Cadets, Hall has taken on the role as a leader and role model. "He is always positive and confident," said sophomore Jackson Cray who also plays catcher for the Cadets. "He always gives me tips and pointers, and I love being around him."
Hall also plays football for the Cadets. He was named an All-State player for his effort on the field this past season. He recently received an offer from West Point and has high interest from other schools such as Virginia Tech, Richmond and James Madison University. Hall plans to play football in college but will continue to play baseball throughout his high school career. "Football is my future," said Hall. "I'm going to keep playing baseball though, because I love the guys and playing is fun."
Hall is a second-honors student as well and was the first sergeant for Bravo Company in the first semester. He likes to go to the gym and lift in his free time and hang out with his friends. Hall looks to be a strong contributor throughout the rest of the Cadets' baseball season.
